The process of moving is daunting, the packing, cleaning, organizing, it’s such a big job! I guess i would be considered somewhat of a collector/hoarder. I read one of the top 10 things to do for simplifying is Purging papers/magazines. Purging magazines would mean Parting with my beloved Victoria magazines. I started collecting Victoria 27 years ago, they’re such a part of my life. I refer to them frequently for inspiration, images are forever imprinted in my mind. Just by reading I’ve visited faraway places like England. Every evening I poured over them, studying the blue and white vignettes, reading about the artists and poets, their hopes and dreams, and beloved gardens and homes. Amazing stories from like-minded souls. I’m always assured of opening a Victoria and being whisked away to some enchanted place, with dreamy clothes. I am close to having every single copy, back to October 1988. Victoria named “Bliss” only reminds me of pleasant thoughts, no other magazine could ever compete! xo
The very first October issue of Victoria debuted in 1988.
